Fans first: Ticket prices won't rise this summer

Via Cricket Australia: 'Fans the winners with no increases to ticket prices for the 2020-21 Men’s International summer'

Cricket Australia have today (November 11) released ticket prices, tickets on sale dates and projected venue capacities for all matches of the 2020-21 Men’s International summer.
 
In a major boost for Australian and Indian cricket fans, there will be no increase in ticket prices for the Dettol One Day International Series matches, Dettol T20 International Series matches and Vodafone Test Series matches, compared to the 2018-19 India tour of Australia.
 
Entry level ticket prices remain at $30 for adults for the fifth year straight, while Cricket Australia’s Premium ticket prices have been held, the same as the last Indian tour in 2018-19.
 
Venue capacities will continue to vary by market depending on government allowances and in line with the approved COVIDSafe plans.
 
The SCG, which is set to host ODI and T20 INTL matches and the Vodafone Pink Test this summer, will hold 50 per cent of total capacity, as will Canberra’s Manuka Oval for their ODI and T20 INTL matches and the Adelaide Oval for historic Day-Night Test match starting December 17.
 
At this stage, the Boxing Day Test is set to hold at least 25 per cent of total capacity across Public, Member and Corporate tickets, equating to 25,000 fans each day of the Test. The Gabba is set to host crowds at 75 per cent of venue capacity for the fourth and final Test of the Vodafone Series, starting on January 15, 2021.
 
The split of availability of general public and members tickets will vary per venue and will be communicated at the on-sale dates listed below.
 
Nick Hockley, CA’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, said he was pleased to be able to reward and welcome fans back to cricket with competitive ticket pricing and transparent venue capacity numbers.
 
“Having confirmed the schedule for the Australia-India Men’s series, we are so excited to confirm ticket pricing and crowd capacities for this highly-anticipated summer of International cricket,” Hockley said.
 
“We have chosen to keep both entry level tickets and Premium tickets at the same price as the last time the Indian Men’s Team toured Australia, with the aim of making sure the series is as accessible and affordable as possible.
 
“State Governments’ in each host city are providing phenomenal support and we are working closely with them to determine venue capacities and biosecurity requirements that place everyone’s safety as the priority.”
